The book gives an overview of the geosynthetic polymers that comprise an important group of materials for lining landfills, mine leachate ponds and water containment facilities. The book starts with an introduction to geomembrane polymeric materials and their properties and manufacturing. The next sections describe the different types of materials such as High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) as well as their properties, shortcomings and applications. Geomembrane survivability such as chemical exposure effects is also discussed. The final chapters cover quality control and quality assurance and leak detection and leak surveys.
